Treasury of Greek Mythology is an encyclopedia of Greek myths and stories from the National Geographic Magazine. Summary of the Book Greek mythology is one of the most popular mythologies in the world. In its stories one finds much of the fables which have passed down in myriad forms. The Greek gods are not the forgiving gods we are used to, in this dead releigion, Gods had short tempers and weren't afraid to exercise it, often against each other. Their loves, hates and angers have become pivotal to stories as varied as the Illiad and the Odyssey. Learn about mystical creatures like the Centaurs and the Satyrs, marvel at the myths of Medusa and the Gorgons, and at the stories of Hercules and his 12 labours. This book is sure to get anyone interested in Greek mythology and will serve as an ideal companion for kids of all ages. About Donna Jo Napoli Donna Jo Napoli is a children's writer from America.
